spatial_ref_sys definitions shouldn't contain TOWGS84 in WKT definition
- Change icomment to:
supporting a +towgs84 term in "old style" geodesic strings contained into spatial_ref_sys is absolutely intentional.
here is a short rationale: 1. when spatialite is linked against PROJ.6 or PROJ.7 all geodesic definitions are always retrieved directly from the PROJ own sqlite DB 2. so the old geodesic strings in spatial_ref_sys are still there just to support the case when spatialite is linked against some obsolete version of PROJ, and in this case defining +towgs84 is absolutely required in order to preserve a fair historical coherence.
future perspectives: when old PROJ versions will be reasonably disappeared, spatial_ref_sys will become just a plain dictionary (SRID, auth_name, auth_srid and ref_sys_name) mainly intended to support Foreign Key constrains in geometry_columns, but will no longer contain any geodesic data at all.
